    Query on Lovenox Administration

    There are some instances if the person has a very tight distended abdomen from abd surg or is very thin sometimes you have to give somewhere else.. its a fair question. I try to avoid arms I dont think that seems like a best practice

    Called in... Feel guilty.

    I understand feeling guilty i know my unit is super busy today but i felt getting sick yesterday and last night my whole chest was tight and body hurt all over.. i called in this am cause i think I have the flu. How much more miserable the already sick patients would be if they got the flu! And I just got my flu shot! ugh!@$%%#

    Anyone going to CLC (College of Lake County)

    My advice to you guys is believe in yourself and don't let ANYONE discourage you. Don't listen to negative instructors or fall into a trap of fearing a bunch of rumors. Just keep focused on the prize and you'll do fine. Anyone currently in the program????
